And the winner of the creepiest show-and-tell displays around goes to one of the biggest antichoice states in the country - why, my own state of Kansas, of course!
The chairwoman of the Kansas Senate's health committee marked the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision Wednesday by introducing a bill that would ban surrogate pregnancies in Kansas and invited two women to undergo sonograms in front of legislators.So now we're performing medical procedures live in the state Senate commitee meetings. What's next, proctology exams for men? Pretty please?
(snip)......Introduction of her bill in the Senate committee was a prelude to an extraordinary medical examination of two pregnant women by a technician operating behind a blue tarp in front of senators and guests.
The first patient — Washburn University student Amanda Kennedy — permitted a viewing of her 12-week-old fetus on a 3-foot-wide television monitor.
I might also say something about the so-called small government Wingnuts running our state essentially shoving their type of big government intrusion down our throats on big screen TV for all to see, but I know that's nothing new to folks here.
I may also have an inquiry on how performing ultrasounds on pregnant women has anything to do with this idiot Senator's desire to ban surrogate mothers (which ironically is very pro-life in creating a life for couples who cannot conceive on their own), but why even bother?
Yes, these are the ignorant boobs who run my state. Freaking awesome.
